Firstly, this is open to everyone, all levels, adults and children. There are several different ladders tailored to each category.
So what’s a tennis ladder tournament? Tennis Clubs in Paphos don’t generally organise these. It’s something very common in the UK. It’s a great, fun way to meet other people and have the opportunity to pitch your skills against others. You can see yourself progressing up the ladder and if you lose a match, it doesn’t matter, you can challenge someone else and then take on the other person again when you’re ready.
OK. So, in a tennis ladder competition, first of all, players are randomnly placed on the steps/rungs of a ladder with number one being the top and say number 10 the bottom. Players challenge one another to a match. In this competition, you can challenge someone up to 3 places above you. If a player wins he either stays the same (if he’s the higher ranked player) or takes the losing players place (if the loser was above him/her) loses, the player moves up or down in position on the ladder. You can play as often or as little as you like, but you can’t challenge the same player until you have played someone else in between.
When does it start and how long does it last?
Our ladder competition is starting now and will last until 1st March 2017. This will give you enough time to play as many matches as you like and to end with a fairly accurate ranking on the ladder.
